In addition to the upgraded tires, brakes and aerodynamics, the Rapide’s suspension has also been upgraded for AMR duties. The Rapide AMR rides 10 mm lower when compared to the Rapide S, but it does retain the three-stage adaptive dampers. However, these adjustable dampers have been thoroughly re-engineered to make the car more agile, dynamic and focused. Much of the suspension tuning for the Rapide AMR has been completed at the AMR Performance Center at the Nurburgring.
When it goes on sale later this year, the 2019 Aston Martin Rapide AMR will be available in three different design schemes: Standard, Silhouette, and Signature. The Standard and Silhouette schemes are available in four colors: Marina Blue, Scintilla Silver, Lightning Silver and Onyx Black. The Standard scheme adds AMR Lime accents to the splitter, sills and rear diffuser. The Silhouette scheme replaces the Lime accents with a full-length contrasting stripe in China Grey or Clubsport White. For those who are looking for the definitive AMR look on their Rapide AMR, the Signature scheme matches Stirling Green paint with Lime accents and Lime stripe, similar to the liveries found on the Aston Martin Racing team’s race cars.
